Happy Lohri and Makar Sankranti to all 🙂 These days Indian markets are flooded with Til chikki, Til laddoo, Puffed rice laddoo, Peanut chikki, Revari, Popcorn and what not to celebrate these festivals. 🙂 They are great energy bars and the crunch and taste of roasted sesame with the sweetness of jaggery will absolutely win your heart. No sugar added, so healthy too.
These Til Chikki/ Sesame Brittles are very healthy to eat in these cozy winter season as these til/ sesame seeds are hot in nature. Eat a Til Chikki/ Til Ladoo a day and keep yourself warm 😀
Learn Step By Step Recipe With Pictures for Til Chikki/ Sesame Brittle
- 1 Cup til/ sesame seeds
- 1 Cup gud/ jaggery
- 1/2 Cup water
- 1/2 Tsp oil/ ghee
Step 1- Roast sesame seeds on low flame until they start fluttering and are lightly brown. Turn off the flame and remove in a plate
Step 2- Now add jaggery in a pan and start heating on low flame. Add 1/2 of water. By doing this you would get time to roll chikki or else it would get hard soon. Once the jaggery is melted add 1/2 tsp of oil. DO not add more oil/ghee
Tip: To check the consistency of jaggery drop some melted jaggery in a glass of water and if you are able to roll it, it’s perfectly done. Else cook more
Step 3- Add the roasted sesame seeds to the melted jaggery and mix well
Step 4- Prepare a rolling board/ plate by applying some oil/ghee and spread the mixture on rolling board/ plate and roll slightly to give a good shape
After rolling make the cuts immediately so that you get the proper shape or else it will become hard. Til chikki is ready. Store in an airtight container.
